    Hello together, I am using ASUS ROG 5300 router and didn't realize that there is no Merlin firmware for it. Now I am stuck with basic configurations but I still hope that someone can help me here.

    I am using VPN fusion (which is actually pretty cool), using my apple tv's (DNS to connect to the VPN (openVPN) but keeping the rest of the devices on normal ISP network. This morning I woke up and realized that I couldnt connect to my local lan via the apple tv's (connecting to plex on NAS) and via a quick check with the VPN provider they told me that the SMARTDNS is making problems which I presume is also causing this.

    Is there any way to tell my router to not use the vpn for inside connections? I know that at Merlin there is a functionality push lan to clients but the original 5300 firmware doesnt have it... :(

    Appreciate help.
